This custom made red and gold brocade tuxedo jacket was worn by Ray Charles during a stage performance in 1985/86. A photo of Charles from the performance is used on the booklet cover for the 1998 4-disk CD box set “Ray Charles: The Complete Country and Western Recordings 1959 – 1986." This jacket is a signature look for Mr. Charles in the later part of his career. He had multiple jackets in the same style made of metallic brocades with varying colors and patterns. The jacket was custom made for Charles by Parkview Clothes in Los Angeles, California, circa 1985. The jacket is constructed of a synthetic bright red satin with a gold metallic brocade pattern in a stylized floral paisley, with black satin lapels, buttons, and pocket trim and three original labels: one embroidered with “Custom made by PARKVIEW CLOTHES, Los Angeles, Calif.," another embroidered with “Custom styled for Ray Charles," and a third interior pocket label with “CHARLES” written in faded ink. The jacket is in excellent stage worn condition, and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the costume house. Presented by The Golden Closet, your premiere source for screen used wardrobe, props, and music entertainment memorabilia. Photos and descriptions are the sole property of The Golden Closet. All screen captures are the property of their respective owners.
